Some of you may be surprised to discover that fastfood reviews weren't invented by bored teens on YouTube (or bloggers at Gizmodo).

In this 1984 video, Geek-Glasses Paul (who is perfect and brilliant) gives an on-camera review (using a now-ancient VHS camcorder) of his McDonald's breakfast, like a time capsule straight to the core YouTube contingent of today.

Why did he do it? WIth what prior planning, and for whom?

My, he is rather taken by that hash brown. [Reddit]
